Race and Ethnicity and Gender and Intersectionality Training
THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Amid concern over coronavirus(COVID-19) and social distancing recommendations this training has been cancelled. This training may be rescheduled, if possible. Please watch your home email for future training announcements.
In this course, participants develop an understanding of
- How our beliefs, values, and experiences inform implicit biases related to race and ethnicity and
- How our implicit biases and behaviors impact others (students, colleagues, families, etc.).
Participants will examine how implicit bias and microaggressions can impact the success of students regardless of the positive intent of adults or other students for the purpose of closing the opportunity gap and improving student achievement.
During the other portion of this course, participants focus on gender and the intersectionality of implicit bias and -isms that lead to microaggressions and inhibit success in the classroom and the workplace. Participants also work on solutions to address the multiple oppressions that students may be facing in the classroom and community for the purpose of improving student achievement.
